This morning I got onto my Mac to find that Firefox was not playing my streaming services (such as Hulu), so I restarted the browser to find that all of my tabs, bookmarks, and passwords were completely gone. I cannot recover them in anyway and this is extremely upsetting as most of it was for my grad school work. If anyone has anyway of helping or recovering this information, I would greatly appreciate any help!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

If you lost personal data then it is possible that a new default-release profile folder has been created.

See "Determine if Firefox has created a new profile":

You can open the about:profiles page via the location bar to check whether multiple profiles are present and what profile Firefox currently is using.
